Jet Ski Accidents Our Goal: Winning & Winning Big

Jet Ski Accidents

Experienced Drowning Lawyer Will Fight for Victims' Rights

A personal watercraft (PWC), commonly known as a jet ski, can be a fun way to enjoy a day on the water. Jet skis are very popular because of their maneuverability, speed, and cost compared to other types of watercraft. Research reveals that jet-ski mishaps cause more injuries than other boating accidents, largely due to excessive speed or improper operating technique, or a combination of the two.

Most jet-ski accidents involve the rider or riders being thrown from their seat during a collision with another watercraft or object, similar to the effects of motorcycle accidents on land. If you or a loved one has been injured or disabled because of a jet-ski accident, let a knowledgeable drowning attorney at The Doan Law Firm, P.C. examine your case and guide you through the legal process with care and compassion.

Jet Ski Safety Basics

The law does not differentiate between a boat and a jet ski. All personal watercraft must be registered, follow the rules for motorboats, and carry safety equipment such as life preservers. Although often treated differently, a jet ski is not a toy and is not safe for children to operate. Persons under the age of 16 need to successfully complete a boating safety course and obtain a certificate, or be accompanied by an adult, in order to operate a jet ski. Before purchasing or driving a jet ski, each individual should check boating regulations in his or her state to understand the laws and safety standards applicable to personal watercraft.

Accidents due to jet-ski operator negligence, carelessness, or unlawfulness are tragic but also avoidable. The owner of the jet ski is responsible for providing up-to-date safety equipment, a properly functioning safety lanyard to cut the engine, and ensuring the watercraft is in safe operating condition. The owner should also be firm in not allowing children or intoxicated individuals to drive the jet ski. When owners and operators skip these measures, drowning or debilitating injury is likely to occur. The legal team at The Doan Law Firm, P.C. is prepared to fight for you and your family and is personally committed to the success of your case.
